The Da Vinci Code: Rough Guides Travel Guide - Michael Haag

Recommended Posts

Dan Brown’s thriller The Da Vinci Code has created an extraordinary controversy, with its sub-plots of the sacred feminine in religion, the bloodline of Christ, the legend of the Holy Grail, and the role of sects like Opus Dei within the church. This Rough Guide explores the context of the novel, including:

• How the early Christian Church “edited” The Bible, and drew on earlier religions.

• What art historians make of Leonardo da Vinci’s symbolism in “The Last Supper” and other works.

• The true history of the Holy Grail and the Priory of Sion, and the debate on Mary Magdalene and the bloodline of Christ.

• Location guides to Da Vinci Code sites in Paris, Rome, Jerusalem, New York, London and Edinburgh.

• Reviews of Da Vinci Code sources and a glossary of everything from the Templars to the Fibonacci Sequence.

 

Whatever you think of Dan Brown’s novel, this Rough Guide has the key to understanding its wider background.
